In the spirit of the Bailey School Kids comes a new series for ages 8 to 10. When Ms. Clevis, popular science teacher and really-nice-person, accidently puts chemicals into her breakfast smoothie, the problems pile up! Ms. Clevis is transformed into the really-not-nice Ms. Hyde and a really-very-nice sixth grader named, Jackie. Can Jackie and her new friends turn her back into Ms. Clevis before it is too late? A funny take on movie-monsters and the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. — Jeanette

Winter 2012 Kids Next List

“This is a wonderful retelling of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story. When Ms. Clevis suddenly splits apart into two different personalities, it's up to the kids in her sixth grade science class to put her back together again. This is a fun and slightly creepy new series that should have kids on the edge of their seats.”
— Janice Hunsche, Kaleidosaurus Books, Fishers, IN
